A crowd of youngsters and. a
throng of curlons lined the path
way to the gangplank. Tunney
attempted to avoid the crowd and
photographers, but was over
powered by the throng that
crushed in upon him.
Impatient at the crowd and the
photographers ho had hoped to

"I have not in any way con

proposition and stories I have
done so are without foundation.
I am not considering what I will
do until I return from my trip.
AH reports to the contrary are er
roneous. "I hope to have a pleasant time
abroad, and will have, if the pub
lic will let me. That's all."
With that he closed the door.
Tunney'a party consisted of
William O. McGeeham. sports
writer, Leonard Hanci of Cleve
land, and William Towell, of New
York. He is scheduled to meet
Thornton Wilder, the novelist,
abroad. They will tramp through
several countries, unless Gene
